Funding Opportunity – Dining Out For Life® Paying It Forward

Dear Partners in Service:

AVOL’s annual Dining Out For Life® event will be held on September 14, 2017; a community wide celebration where participating restaurants contribute 25% of the day’s proceeds to AVOL. Many of those dining with us give additional donations.

AVOL’s Board of Directors is excited to announce that up to 10% of donor and restaurant contributions this year will be granted to other community organizations located in Central and Eastern Kentucky. In return, these organizations agree to help promote Dining Out For Life by communicating through email and mailing lists, social media, board members, and volunteers to “dine out” on September 14! The more participation, the higher the 10% funding pool.

The DOFL Paying It Forward Program at AVOL aims to:

  • Increase the strength of our partnerships

  • Address the continuum of HIV prevention services more fully

  • Increase efforts to reach populations at-risk for HIV and encourage them to get tested

Paying It Forward will focus this year on HIV prevention and testing. Organizations are encouraged to use their creativity to propose an education and testing approach or event that will attract, engage and educate populations at high-risk for HIV.

To apply, send a letter to AVOL’s Board of Directors briefly addressing the following main points:

  • Assurance that your organization’s mission and services extensively reach populations and individuals at high-risk for contracting HIV

  • Brief description of the need for financial assistance and how the funds will be used, briefly describe your proposed activity

  • Describe how your organization will help promote DOFL on September 14

  • Permission to use your organizations name on promotional materials

  • Willingness to refer potential volunteers at various events leading up to and during this year’s DOFL on September 14 (as your are able)

  • Signature of the Board of Director’s chair (when applicable) or the highest ranking organization decision maker

  • Willingness to file a brief final report to AVOL describing the success of your effort

AVOL is willing to collaborate with you in the implementation of your effort as you see fit. We can provide consultation, free HIV testing, and other resources. As activities conclude, AVOL will be compiling success stories to share back with donors and participants of Dining Out For Life.

Address sealed letters to AVOL Board of Directors DOFL by June 30, 2017 at 365 Waller Avenue, Suite 100, Lexington, KY 40504. Letters will be opened by the Board at its meeting on July 12 and reviewed at that time. Based on responses, the Board will allocate up to 10% to proposed projects. Recipient organizations will be notified on July 13th.

An example hypothetical allocation scenario based on 2016 DOFL Totals:

DOFL Paying It Forward




Domestic Violence shelter, one-time empowerment workshop



Community youth group, one-time neighborhood party and education event



HIV service organization, four weekly workshops for high-risk partners of HIV positive individuals



Student organization, purchase of HIV prevention supplies



Neighborhood ministry, testing event for sex workers



of DOFL Restaurant and Individual Contributions

The Board of Directors will make the allocation at its sole discretion. Payments will be released on December 1st, World AIDS Day 2017. Funded activities should take place within sixth months of receipt of funds.

Restrictions: Sub-recipients will participate with and support official Dining Out For Life activities and official participating restaurants only. Dining Out For Life cannot honor donor designations. Only officially approved Dining Out For Life images and materials may be used in promotions. Volunteer Ambassadors will be required to attend AVOL’s Ambassador Training prior to the event.

We look forward to hearing from you.
